US bombs Al Qaeda, Taleban leaders' compound

United States Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld in a press briefing on Tuesday night said US warplanes bombed a compound in Kandahar believed to house Al Qaeda and Taleban leaders

"Those who were there will wish they weren't," Rumsfeld said in Washington.

Replying to a question whether the compound housed Saudi terrorist Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar, the Taleban spiritual leader, Rumsfeld said the leaders believed housed in the compound were of 'appreciable' importance.

"It clearly was a leadership area," he added.

He said the site was linked to leaders of Al Qaeda, the Taleban and Wafa, an Islamic relief organisation that Pentagon officials have identified as a front for Al Qaeda.

The attack on the leadership compound came after Rumsfeld told a news conference in Tampa that the focus of the campaign would be shifting from Afghan cities to the hunt for leaders of Al Qaeda, the terrorist network blamed for the September 11 suicide attacks on the United States.
